BIO-TIC is your gateway to Industrial Biotechnology
Funded by the European Commission, BIO-TIC is a three-year project which aims to establish an overview of the barriers to biotech innovation and design a clear action plan to overcome them. Launched in September 2012 by 11 partners, BIO-TIC is centered on a solid roadmapping exercise that will involve all value chain partners, from broad industry to academia, knowledge organisations, governments and civil society.
This conference aims to provide major players from the European bio-based chemicals, plastics and composite industries with an opportunity to present and discuss their latest developments and strategies. Representatives of political bodies and associations will also have their say alongside leading companies. For the first time, the conference will count with a third day especially dedicated to science and start-ups – getting them in touch with investors and industry. One highlight of the conference will be the presentation of the first running European biorefineries and the state-of-art of Industrial Biotechnology. It’s one of the biggest conferences with more than 180 participants from all over the world and an exhibition which provides an excellent platform for your networking!
For the seventh year running the Innovation Award “Bio-based Material of the Year” will be granted to the young, innovative bio-based chemicals and materials industry for finding suitable applications and markets for bio-based products. The competition focuses on new developments in these areas, which have had (or will have) a market launch in 2013 and 2014, exclusively coming from Europe this time round. Apply now and present your bio-based innovation to an expert audience!
The deadline for the application is: 31 January 2014

Under the auspices of the Greek Presidency of the European Council, the Industrial Technologies 2014 conference integrates nanotechnology, biotechnology, advanced materials and new production technologies. The event offers opportunities for developing valuable research and industry collaborations, and showcases cutting-edge research, latest innovations and rising companies from all around Europe.
BIO-TIC project will be at the conference to showcase its latest findings on technological, non-technological and market innovation hurdles to industrial biotechnology and how we can get past them. BIO-TIC will be hosted at the SusChem booth, the European Technology Platform for Sustainable Chemistry, which addresses challenges specific to the European chemical and industrial biotechnology industry for the benefit of society as a whole.
